CEO of Aspire360
I'm the Founder and CEO of Aspire360, the network for startup CEOs. I built Aspire360 because I know how difficult it is to start a company. There are a billion decisions to be made and even more things to do every day. Some people try to go it alone, but my success has always come from utilizing my network and my resources. So, in 2020, I decided to offer these and many more resources to my fellow startup CEOs, to make it easier to fundraise, find product-market fit, etc. We've built a network of serial entrepreneur coaches that have raised more than half a billion dollars, coached CEOs through their pivots, building a sales team, and through their own multi-million dollar fundraising rounds. Our venture capital partners include - Greycroft - Cowboy - Inspired Capital - ...many more! If there's a way that I can help you on your journey, please reach out. ---- My formal entrepreneurial journey started when I was selected to be an inaugural member of the Innovation Scholars program at Carnegie Mellon. Before my senior year, I had started my first company, e. e. books. I worked with NYTimes Bestselling Authors and won several startup competitions, including the McGinnis Competition, the CMU Venture Challenge, and Hack-a- Startup. Through my next startup, Halo Mountain, I was invited to participate in two accelerator programs (Health Wildcatters and eLab NYC) and raised funds for the preclinical development of an Alzheimer's Disease therapeutic. Through Aspire360, I was invited to participate in: - Jason Calcanis' Founder University - Columbia Business School's Premier Accelerator - The Greenhouse Program I competed in and won: - the Columbia Summer Startup Track Award - the Building Marketplaces Category of the Columbia Venture Competition I was also selected as one of a few startups to compete in the Rice Business Plan Competition, the world's richest and largest student startup competition. In my free time, I love to read, write novels, travel, practice krav maga, and ski.
